View Full Version : A job fell into my lap!

Since the library has only interviewed me once in eight application submissions, I've sort of come to the realization that they just don't take in outside people.

On Tues. I massaged a husband and wife; hubby slept the entire time, wife was chatty. She mentioned she had an animal related business and they're shorthanded. I mentioned I was available at least two days a week, my organizing and data entry skills, etc. She said she'd speak to her husband--two hours later, I had a job.

You've probably seen those magnets that say "I love my Beagle", the paw shaped ones saying "I'm one cat short of being the crazy cat lady"? She supplies them wholesale to shops all over the country. She needed someone to help fill orders, package and ship them, and organize them. The other women are animal lovers, two have horses, I can wear anything I want, and it's 12 minutes from the spa. So, I can work there on my on-call days and hop over to the spa if I get a client. Oh, and the building is a converted barn! Right now she's paying me in cash.

How lucky was that! It's not the library, but possibly more fun. Her business keeps growing and they're expanding all the time. I always dreamed a job would come along this way, and it has. So maybe the library never worked out because this was waiting for me. I may be working six days a week for awhile, but that's OK because I could really use extra money right now. Yippee!!

I am smiling for you! That's great. It's a great example, too, of "putting it out there..." by which I mean making it plain that you are looking for something. That's the only way that your something can find you. Hooray!

That is so cool, PM! And something that you really like, too! Gotta put those vibes out there.

Around my house we laugh a lot because I have worked on 3 jobs that actually closed down. I just tell them not to worry, because someone will call with a job offer. I have gotten about 4 jobs just that way, lol. I liked them all, too.

Thanks, everyone! I actually feel a bit guilty that it happened so easily. There are a few people I won't feel right telling, like my two friends who have been unemployed for four years, and my alcoholic sister, who had a job for a week, went on a bender, and never went back again--she was fired.

It's strange, but it seems I always get what I want. If it's meant to be, it happens for me. Anyone else?

Yup, I'm like that too.

Always lucky, or an opportunist, or what have you. I see an opportunity, I usually take it. :D

The law of attraction....if you believe it will happen and put it out there....it does :)
